Geoffrey Rush, the Academy award-winning actor, yesterday faced fresh allegations of inappropriate behaviour by an actress, amid his defamation battle with a newspaper over separate claims.

Australian actress Yael Stone (33) said Rush danced naked in front of her in their dressing room when she starred opposite him in 'The Diary of a Madman' in 2010 and 2011. She said he used a mirror to watch her as she showered, and accused him of sending her erotic texts.

Rush (67) said in a statement published by 'The New York Times' that Stone's allegations were "incorrect and in some instances have been taken completely out of context".

He is suing Sydney's 'Daily Telegraph' after a story in November last year reported the Sydney Theatre Company received a complaint about him when he was working there.
